I happened to be in Stockton at lunch time so I looked for a place to eat. Came across Fat City Brew & BBQ. So happy that's what we chose. Got the two meat plate...brisket and pulled pork with onion rings and a side salad. So Good!!! The meats were juicy!! Some of the best BBQ meats I've had. The onion rings were good. I wish the salad had been made with romaine lettuce but it was mixed greens. The customer service was outstanding!! I would definitely return if in Stockton again. Saw the bathroom sign on my way out...loved it. Haha
Wonderful experience here! I got the beyond burger, and it was so full of flavor, and juicy (if that’s possible) I will definitely be returning here soon.
Fast service and very tasty smoked pulled pork. They make their own bbq sauces and I liked most of them. Pulled pork didn't need sauce on it. The hot link was delicious too.
Amazing food, staff was great. Was disappointed some of the food items were gone, but I suppose that's a testament to their great taste. Will definitely visit again!
It's... fine? I wasn't disappointed or anything, but this bbq certainly is not up to snuff compared to what you'll find in St Louis or Memphis. I did like their "hot" bbq well enough, but could have had more kick still. Might try elsewhere before returning.
The food is absolutely fantastic. The people were also very nice. I decided to check the place out after checking out the location of my new job. Parking was easy for me to find. I would highly suggest this restaurant and would go back on occasion. It is a little pricey, but it wouldn't stop me from going back.
100percent my daytime hangout, personally. Feels like I'm coming home when I sit down to have a beer. Great food great staff. Cheers to the fact that there's a business owner here that still wants to rep "Fat City.”
The tri-tip sandwich was very good didn't really care for the mac and cheese didn't have too much flavor the onion rings were delicious great customer service
Great BBQ spot in Stockton. Service was great and the food was (FLG) finger lickin’ good. It ain’t cheap but it definitely worth your hard earned money. Don’t forget to try their BBQ sauces, you won’t regret it.
I've been to a lot of BBQ joints and mostly leave saying "I could've cooked this myself" , but this place was different. For starters a great choice of IPA beers. The employees were engaging and friendly. We had a brisket sandwich, which my girl loved. I had a 2 meat combo..Ribs and chicken. The ribs were tender and good , but to me the star of the meal was that damn smoked chicken. AMAZINGLY tasty and good..not dry at all... probably the best smoked chicken I ever had. Will be back for sure.
First time here. I had the sliders - tri-tip, pulled pork, and chicken - and house fries. Delicious! My husband had the half slab of St. Louis ribs and those were super good. Flavor was yummy and meat was tender. Rob's Frog Sauce in various flavors and heats are on the tables for customer use. I had a great experience and look forward to going back.
Great First Time Experience!!! Friendly Service!!! Clean Restaurant!! Amazing Food!!! I Mean Amazing!!!!!! EXCELLENT Choice of Brew!!! If You Haven't Been to FAT CITY BREW Your Missing Out!!! Will Definitely be Coming Back for More!!!!!!
First time here and I'm in love!! I had the brisket sandwich and it was fantastic!! I decided on the Mac and cheese for my side, great choice!! Amazing choice of beers on tap, I had a pineapple IPA!! Our server, Scott, was super!! He was attentive, friendly, and just a sweetheart!! I highly recommend this place! I plan on coming back!!
Always friendly service with a smile and some of the Best BBQ in town. Don is creative when it comes to new items, such as the recent Donut Burger. Sweet and Savory all in one!
I love this place! They have delicious meals, their menu is nice, The chief cook in that spot is a professional, I like very much eating all their dishes. The food is consistently of high class, the service towards the customers is agreeable. I go often to this place and I not even once was disappointed. I recommend this place.
Cute place...the bbq was amazing..great service we will definitely be going back
They have the most tender juicy brisket I have ever had and their tri tip sandwiches are Amazing. Great customer service and great food. I highly recommend this place.
The place offers a great range of fresh food. I enjoyed eating here. Staff members are always very kind, pricing is fair and the place is always kept clean.
Delicious! My kids were over the moon about the Harley fries, and my husband liked that they had brisket which is hard to find some times. Easy to order online and pick up. Tryin the beef ribs on a Saturday night is definitely next on our list.
This is my go to place for BBQ in Stockton. Juicy tri-tip, tender smoked chicken, great sandwiches, in a comfortable setting. California BBQ is hit or miss. It's not like Texas where even suspicious roadside service stops serve amazing BBQ everywhere. Fat City definitely delivers. Their selection of fresh brewed beer also hits the spot, especially if you like IPAs.
From the first moment you come to this restaurant they give you an excellent feeling. Very courteous team, it is a lovely restaurant to go out with friends and colleagues or with your date. delightful cooking, creative chef, honest cost and excellent service. Highly recommended.
Professional BBQ and great service. Smoked foods are great, but this one will have you thinking about their menu for weeks on end. So add them to you contact list, and give them a call.
Food was excellent and cooked to perfection! Nice customer service and friendly staff with a very clean restaurant. Had to wait to place my order while two staff members finished up a personal conversation that kept the line waiting. Also, a little disappointed by the lack of Covid 19 protocols in place especially the indoor dining with poor ventilation. Very warm inside and did not feel very comfortable. Would return again for take out possibly.
I really like this place. They re always very pleasant and the atmosphere they project makes you want to come back again. The food is DELICIOUS 😋😋
The dry rub that they put on the ribs and the chicken, is awesome! When I go back I will focus on those two items. A mac and cheese is pretty good definitely the best side that I had. The day that we ordered the bean chili all of the beans were undercooked and our stomachs were not very happy with us. The nachos on the menu seem aptly named to me. I know I will be avoiding them in the future. Overall I would go back I would just make my choices on the menu much more precise.
There sandwich hits on the spot! The rib meat is so juicy and tender but the bread can get soggy quick if you are getting it delivered. I would ask for them to keep the bread on the side. The side of macaroni i got was huuuge, no doubt and it filled me up and i was satisfied. Thanks Fats! You have a new regular!
Exceptional place to buy something when in a hurry. Their service is prompt, prices are affordable, excellent mood. Will come visit again
Wow!! Wow!! We can’t thank you enough FAT CITY IN STOCKTON!!! The BBQ was a total hit!! The tri tip and ribs were so tender and flavorful and the garlic ribs were gone in mere minutes!!!! You helped us make our daughters graduation day a true memorable success!!! The communication for our order was great!!! Don you never missed a beat. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
My boyfriend and I love to eat here! The devil sauce is sooo good, but it is "spicy".
First time going and I was not disappointed. I had got the half slab of ribs which comes with 2 sides n a corn muffin, chicken wings n my Mom got the hotlink sandwich, I also got some cheesecake. I paid less than 50 bucks n I was very shocked that it was that cheap. A must go if u haven't been.
Great selection of beers. Great service. Had the brisket sandwich. It either had to much bread or not enough meat. Will probably stop in again and try something else.
We loved the ribs, but we were surprised to find a meat tax of $9. We didn't figure it out until we ate them. We wondered why our bill seemed high.
The staff is always very friendly & helpful. I've had the smoked fried chicken sandwich as well as the brisket sandwich. Both were very good, I look forward to trying more on my next visit.
Meat was so tender it just slid off the ribs. Sauce selection was very good. Got the junk fries with tri tip on top and my kids loved that.
Really good food. I love the beer selection. The price was pretty steep. For the beef ribs.
Tasty. Enjoyed and will come again. Next time will share a meal. Prices and portions are big.
Love coming here, I've tried almost everything on menu and it's delicious. The sauces are great, I'd say the smoked grilled chicken is probably my favorite but I do like the hot link sandwich too.
Good barbecue restaurants are few and far between in town! Fat City is good. I enjoyed my meal there. These guys know what they’re doing. They have done competition BBQ in the past. This is the real deal. Even though I am not a big fan of dry rub, I enjoyed the ribs. They have so many different sauces available, you can doctor them up however you want. I am not a big fan of their side dishes. They are adequate but nothing exciting. The onion rings are OK. I would order those again. The potato salad was nondescript. It needs to be improved. Homemade would be awesome. They also offer coleslaw, spicy beans and mac & cheese. I did not try those. I am looking forward to going back, having more ribs and trying other menu items. I hope these guys stay in business. Stockton needs more BBQ. I feel that they’re very expensive. Hence I deducted one star. Otherwise I would be eating there more frequently. Closed Mondays!
